Abstract: The aim of this project is to investigate the movements performed by loggerhead turtles in the Adriatic sea. The Adriatic sea is home to a quite large number of turtles, especially loggerheads, representing one of the best feeding area within the Mediterranean Sea. Both juveniles and adult loggerheads frequent this area, and are thought to perform seasonal migrations, especially in response to changes in environmental parameters, especially temperature.
